Wow! this is cool man. Of course, what makes it cooler is that it's free. I guess this is the first free resume builder in the market.

Didn't start testing it yet, but when I was looking around for my favorite font i.e. Nunito, I didn't found it. I was expecting it because "Google Fonts" was mentioned above. I guess it will be amazing if I was able to use any font available at google fonts. Most of them won't be suitable for resumes, but it would be cool instead of limited fonts.

As it's open-source I'll be more than happy to contribute or open issues in the future.

Amazing work man!

Thank you so so much! :) Yes, we all love free stuff :D But I am happier about the fact that so many people find it useful. I'm really glad you liked the application, and I will definitely do what I can to keep it more engaging!

As for the font issue, I got you. I had faced the exact same thing. I wanted to use Avenir Next but it was a macOS only font, not available anywhere else. So that's why I've added a text field at the bottom of the Fonts section. All you need to do is download the Nunito font onto your system, install it and type 'Nunito' in the text field, it will load the font locally :)

Please do let me know if it worked out for you! And I would be happy to see any contributions made to the app. Thank you so much for your feedback and support!

download the Nunito font onto your system
I saw this option but as a windows user, there is a lot of stuff needed to be done to install extra fonts on the system. Frankly, I have tried installing fonts on my windows many times and 99% of the time it doesn't work on my system due to some reason 😅.

As you see this is a long process and I thought just extracting it from google fonts API would be easier.

What, really? I used to use Windows too, and it was pretty simple (digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to...).

Anywho, no issues. I will definitely look into adding more fonts. Do you often use any other fonts other than Nunito, so that I can add them as well? :)

Hey, I forgot to update you on the new update that I pushed. It contains the Nunito font now as well, and I must say, I didn't give the font enough credit, it looks really good on resumes :) Thank you for the suggestion!
